The Marengo Memorial Hospital Dialysis Unit first opened on September 25, 2006. On October 1, 2012, a local group of healthcare providers formed River Valley Dialysis, LLC and purchased the dialysis unit.
We are Medicare Certified and plan to continue keeping local services available to the community through continued local ownership. We currently provide dialysis on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays in the mornings and afternoons. As the need arises we plan to expand our services and offer dialysis 6 days a week by adding Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Our Nurse Manager has specialized in dialysis and is a Certified Dialysis Registered Nurse. We offer a caring homelike experience with all cares being provided by Licensed Nurses. Our nurse to patient ratio is very low at one nurse per three patients. Each of our dialysis chairs has an individual television sets with cable for your enjoyment. We also offer free wireless internet within the unit.
In addition to our nursing staff we have a Dietician and Social Worker available to meet all of your dietary and social needs. All dialysis care is overseen by our Medical Director Dr. Fadi Yacoub from Internist Associates of Iowa.
